Mary Wilson joined friends from a Detroit housing project – Diane Ross and Florence Ballard – to form a group that became The Supremes, one of the most successful female groups in U.S. history. Their 12 number-one hits on Motown Records included “Where Did Our Love Go,” “Baby Love,” “Stop, In The Name Of Love” and “Back in My Arms Again.”

After Ross and Ballard left the group, Wilson was matched with Jean Terrell and Cindy Birdsong to form The New Supremes. Their hits included “Up the Ladder to the Roof” and “River Deep, Mountain High.” She pursued a solo career, wrote a best-selling autobiography, Dreamgirl: My Life as a Supreme, lectured and served as a cultural ambassador for the U.S. State Department.
